The man at the helm of Ascendant Capital, LLC is Jeffrey Schneider. The company specializes in alternative forms of investment and has been growing for a long period of time. When they started, they only had a few employees but currently, the company has more than 30 people under their payroll. The company has also grown in terms of capital base and is now worth more than a billion in assets. These are the things that the man at the helm, Jeffrey Schneider has to say about the work environment and the role he has played in transforming his company so far.
He states that the turning point in his investment plan was the realization that people were shifting from the concept of just delivering great services to their customers and now wanted people to have a positive experience when working in their company. For instance, fewer people favored the concept of there being cubicle offices where employees would be secluded. Jeffry stated that when the office space is a happy place for the employees, their output will automatically improve.
The first step that he feels that employers should take towards ensuring that their employees are happy and free is making sure there is a lot of movement in the office. For instance, at any given time in the office, 5 percent of the employees should be standing or moving around. He believes in the social nature of humans and that when one is confined to some form of cubicle, they will have a mental picture of the workplace being a prison.
The other recommendation that he makes is that as much as possible, the workers should be encouraged to interact with one another. When people are allowed to carry out group projects, their creativity is boosted and the freedom to relate with each other makes them become more productive.
Silence in the office space is the third recommendation that he makes. When there is too much noise in the place, the interferences become too much for productivity. The ideal work space should be free for the employees and when this happens, turnover of the employees will go down and the productivity will increase. These are the ideas that have helped him transform his workplace to a success hub.
